Anthony Smith recently posted a picture of his surgically-repaired hand in which he had a metal rod inserted to correct the issue after he broke it during his fight against Alexander Gustafsson a few weeks back.

See it again here.

But that is child’s play when compared to Paige VanZant’s gnarly operation to repair her bum arm. Indeed, “12 Gauge” took to Instagram to post a very graphic picture of her arm mid-way though the surgery, showing a huge gash and metal rod to go with it.

Paige announced that she’d be going under the knife to take care of the pesky injury that has come back to haunt her on more than one occasion and forced her to go through surgery repeatedly. “12 Gauge” was looking to mount a comeback this summer, but opted to undergo surgery, first.

Paige was last seen defeating Rachael Ostovich at UFC on ESPN+ 1 this past January to break her two fight skid (recap here). Unfortunately, VanZant broke her arm once again a few months later, forcing her most-recent surgery.

Warning the pictures are very graphic and not for the faint of heart:
